    The problem that came up on Kaspersky was "Service termination timeout is outside the allowable range"
    If you have Kaspersky then run the Microsoft Windows Troubleshooting feature on it and see if you get the same error. If you do then click Fix and then restart your computer and see if that fixes it. I fixed it for me. When you run the troubleshooter, choose Search for damage caused my malware activity. When it finds any issues click on to check them in the check boxes if necessary if it says it is recommended to be fixed. Especially if it says Service termination timeout is outside the allowable range. (If you want to, you can fix other problems that are not necessary to be fixed) then click next. It will start to the issues once it is done put a check mark in reboot the computer and click finish. After if your computer restarts, check and see if the problem is fixed.

    What was the fix? I am already listed as the owner of all of the folders I have checked...but still denied the option to saving to them; only given the option to 'save to documents' the general docs folder. I also can save to desktop.

    I'm having the same problem. Honestly... how did Microsoft manage to break the documents folder?

    Must be a glitch in Windows that is causing some people to have permission issues. I wonder if Microsoft is aware of this problem.

    I've been trying to get the word out...It's a really BIG problem that needs to be addressed by Microsoft. I posted here too:

    1. Right click an affected folder.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. Click the Security tab
    4. Click the "Advanced" button.
    5. Click "Change" next to Owner.
    6. Type your username, click the "Check Names" button, then click OK.
    7. Check "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" under the owner's name.
    8. Click OK again. If you get a message saying "Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you full control?", click "Yes" and you're done.
    9. Click the "Edit" button.
    10. Click on your username from the list.
    11. Check "Full control" underneath it.
    12. Click OK.
    13. Click OK again.

    Repeat with all of the problematic folders.
    When you say to "Type your username", where do I type it? I see a place for "Object Type" and "From this location", but nothing for a username.
